I hate to jump on the bandwagon of the 9/11 anniversary, but someone has to dissent from the worship now paid to this particular day.
I would suggest that this overflowing of “news” coverage, the almost reverent display of thanks to murdering troops, and the pathetic abundance of ignorance concerning the events of that day, can all be laid at the feet of government propaganda and the complicit mainstream media. In my opinion, we won’t be long waiting for the Congress to declare this date as a national holiday; a holiday that will be another forced worker day off, where boating, camping, and picnics become the norm in order to celebrate blowback (and more) due to U.S. hegemony.
The United States government and its military have been warring aggressively against Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001 and 2003 respectively. And yes, I do know that the government claims to have left Iraq, but that is simply not true. Thousands upon thousands of American soldiers have died, many more have been horribly wounded, and 300 to 400 commit suicide each year. Over 100,000 innocent Afghans and Iraqis have been murdered, and hundreds of thousands have been displaced, all since 2001. All this has happened in addition to the U.S. killing and maiming innocents in Egypt, Yemen, Pakistan, Libya, Syria, and all over Africa, and now Iran is being threatened daily.
All this has been done so that the U.S. can steal the resources of these countries. All this has been done so the U.S. can gain massive power at home, can support monetarily its corrupt corporate partners, can gain a strategic foothold over the entire Middle East, and can turn American citizens into slaves to the state. In other words, all this destruction and carnage has been for absolutely nothing, but that doesn’t stop the sheep from celebrating and worshiping the deaths of 3000 people in New York; deaths that occurred due to U.S. foreign policy and its imperialistic desires.
The 9/11 commission, a corrupt commission at that, said that they were constantly lied to about events of that day.
John Farmer, senior counsel to the Commission stated that the Commission “discovered that…what government and military officials had told Congress, the Commission, the media, and the public about who knew what when — was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue.” Farmer continues: “At some level of the government, at some point in time … there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened…The (NORAD) tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public.”
Thomas Kean, the head of the 9/11 Commission, concurred: “We to this day don’t know why NORAD told us what they told us, it was just so far from the truth.”
There is absolutely no reason to believe one single word uttered by the U.S. government, its military, or the mainstream media about the “attack” on September 11th, 2001. None!
So why celebrate the murder of innocents worldwide due to the lies of a very corrupt and evil U.S. government? It’s time instead to think critically instead of accepting the lies that have been fed to you, the American people. It’s time to look for the truth, instead of hiding from it.
Apathy, gullibility, stupidity, ignorance, and false nationalistic “patriotism,” will serve only to gain you serfdom, and in addition will make all those guilty of these things complicit in the government’s murderous ways!
